Been looking for a surplus unit, can't afford a new one but the military has them in their shops, United Airlines had them in their hangars collecting dust they are sooo handy...

lots of consumibles! like welding tips, plasme tips and electrodes,spare spool of wire. suck working at 10pm and running into not having anymore of something. Yea i agree on not buying hf "harbor frieght" stuff except for the lots and lots of grinders. i have two dwalts and like 5 harbor frieght grinders their cheap like $20 bucks the last as long as my dwalts and come with spare brushes for inside. down side is their now as powerful as my dwalts but still get the job done.

Also a must have grinder its over kill but worth having. the 9in disc grinder from hf. Use that on your huge flat surfaces and knocks materail down in half the time and cuts down on the uneven grinding waves you see after finish grinding. kills ur arm useing tho.

lots of bolts and nuts. keep a junk bucket of misc. bolts and washers and nuts fittings etc. trust me ull find yourself going thro it like crazy

Extra batteries for everything that runs on batteries.Learned that lesson today for about the 50th time. Not having 2 D-cells for my Vantage cost me about an hour of my day.

I know this post was while back but could you snap some quick shots of the other interesting things like your attachments and tools round the table. I can see quite a few but cant quite make out what they all are??

Thanks in advance

I picked up a HFT mini (7"x10") lathe about a week ago. I've even having a lot of fun with it and I really want to pick up a full size one now. Lathing is an addictive hobby.
